fence to make it harder to climb. the secret service called that a temporary security measure until a long-term solution could be implemented. this jumper follows a series of embarrassing incidents for the secret service, including a security breach where a fence jumper was able to get inside the white house, made it all the way to the east room. he was one of three men to jump the fence last year. the secret service says criminal charges are pending against caputo, but, elaine at this point we don't know why he jumped the fence or what was in that binder. >> kris van cleave at the white house for us tonight. kris, thank you. it was just yesterday that the president assured the nation that law enforcement is on the case in the wake of the paris attacks, and there were plenty of cops at the premiere thanksgiving day event, macy's thanksgiving day parade. don dahler was there. >> reporter: the largest contingent of heavily armed police officers in the parade's history stood along the parade's

4:04 am
critical response commands, and the strategic response group. we have anywhere up to 800 people available to respond to any incident. >> reporter: the nature of terror attacks has shifted to the use of automatic weapons and suicide vests. so the nypd adopted new rules of engagement. officers will respond more quickly with deadly force. commissioner bill bratton: >> we have responded by retraining all of our personnel, and we're in the process of now doing that with my 35,000, to get in and neutralize the threat as fast as possible. >> reporter: officials insist there is no specific, credible threat against the united states, but, elaine, some municipalities, such as new york city, are continuing on a heightened security level through the holidays. >> don dahler reporting from new york city. don, thank you. in moscow today, the presidents of russia and france agreed to cordinate their airstrikes against isis in syria. francois hollande has been trying to form a broad coalition

against the terror group since it attacked paris two weeks ago. those attacks were planned in belgium, and tonight, the search for suspects continues. debora patta is in brussels. >> reporter: for the fifth day, police raided neighborhoods around the capital, part of the ongoing investigation into the paris attacks which killed 130. and tonight, one person was arrested in the raids. the terror threat in brussels has now been reduced to level three, which means an attack is still possible but no longer imminent. brussels has been on virtual lockdown for the past week. schools were closed. so were subways and some stores. public gatherings were banned. andre jacobs is the former head of the government's intelligence unit that tracked islamic extremists. he told us the government may have overreacted initially, or that the police raids have turned up new details.

have shown that the terrorists have left the country," he said, "or that they don't have weapons." [ gunfire ] police are still hunting for two paris suspects, saleh abdeslam and mohammed abrini. they both lived in the brussels neighborhood of molenbeek, which has gained a reputation for being a jihadi hotbed. a month before the attacks, molenbeek mayor francois schepmans received a list of 80 islamic militants from belgian intelligence. abdeslam was on the list. so was the suspected ring leader abdelhamid abaaoud, but schepmans says it was not her job to track down terrorists. "it is up to the federal police, she said "to carry out actions like identification, arrest and interrogation." and, she claimed, police had received the same information. two weeks on and belgian police are still no closer to finding saleh abdeslam.
4:07 am
says he must have a large terror cell assisting him because it would be impossible for him to hide for this long on his own. >> and, debora, what came out of the meeting between france and russia today? >> reporter: the two leaders agreed to increase the exchange of intelligence to assist the u.s.-led coalition in intensifying airstrikes against isis, and that other rebel groups would not be targeted. up until now, russia has been attacking groups fighting against the assad regime in syria. so, elaine, it's going to be interesting to see exactly how that agreement will be implemented. >> debora patta in brussels for us tonight. debora, thank you. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. almost sixty million americans are affected by mental illness. together we can help them with three simple words. my name is chris noth

tomorrow by a large protest over the shooting death of a black teenager by a white police officer. the past two nights have seen small, mostly peaceful demonstrations. this followed the release of a video showing officer jason van dyke shooting laquan mcdonald 16 times. van dyke has been charged with murder. in minneapolis, protesters and community groups shared thanksgiving dinner outside a police station. the protesters have been camped out there for more than a week after 24-year-old jamar clark was shot and killed during a struggle with police. some witnesses said clark was handcuffed at the time. the police deny that. in africa, the pope calls for peace between christians and muslims. and how the world's biggest drone maker plans to stop isis from using them on the battlefield.

4:15 am
allen pizzey is with the pope in nairobi. >> reporter: the traditional african welcome was a joyous reflection of how pope francis' message is being received. a kenyan newspaper summed it up as "our politicians could learn a thing or two from him." on his first trip to africa, francis urged kenyans to help bridge the increasingly violent divisions between muslims and christians. all too often, he said, young people are being radicalized in the name of religion to sow discord and fear. kenya suffered at the hands of islamic extremists which the al-shabaab militia slaughtered 147 mainly christian students at a university earlier this year and then killed 67 people in an attack on a shopping mall here in 2013. francis called the attacks barbarous, and said that god's
4:16 am
justify hatred and violence. there are fears that the pope himself could be a prime target. some 10,000 police and army troops are on duty. rain turned the grounds where today's mass was held into a quagmire, but rain is also considered a blessing here, so it didn't dampen the mood. and using words that will resonate with the deeply conservative african catholic church, francis called on kenyans to resist practices which foster arrogance in men, hurt or demean women, and threaten the life of the innocent unborn. pope francis is also using this trip to push his message of concern for the environment, but in a region wracked by ethnic and interreligious violence, it is inevitably his calls for peace and reconciliation that strike the most vibrant chord. allen pizzey, cbs news, nairobi. >> drone sales are taking off.

4:20 am
using gps technology, dji can program drones so they cannot fly near sensitive sites, but security concerns were raised when a dji drone landed near the white house in january. is it bad for business when one of your drones shows up on the white house lawn? >> it is bad in that we feel that there is only so much that we can do to control the aircraft, but then it's really coming down to education, what you should and shouldn't do. >> reporter: regulators are playing catch-up with drone technology. what do you really wish a drone could do that it just can't do? >> if i can take the flying camera and have it autonomously do its own thing. if i say, "follow me all day and don't bump into anything" that would be the ultimate product. >> reporter: seth doane, cbs news, shenzhen, china. >> this might be a fun game to
